    Went here until the plane takes a walk from Chitose station. Noteworthy is the large room can be observed in the riverbed of the Chitose river water, can be observed underwater fish through the glass. Wow seems powerful, had screened the video made during the runup of 11 salmon observed plenty of salmon. Station walking 15 minutes only.

    Many seeking entertainment, said recently the aquariums with large, very conscientious in, I felt the quality. It is our hometown and the hometown of salmon, in community-based living. Plan was prepared for everyone from children to adults, from exhibition that reflected the concept or anti-. Will differ from the large-scale exhibition of imaginary Ho! lump of love of nature represented by the salmon's sense of I. It is recommended for small.
